The Hindu Indian state is passing legislations against all Human Rights. The victims of these are minorities, schedule castes and Adivasis or Tribal’s. Our Party supports the statement of UN Human Rights Commissioner Ms. Michelle Bachelet
The Indian Express Dated 21st October, 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our Party has been worrying about the extreme right that the BJP – RSS Union Government is turning. The UN Commissioner for Human Rights is also stating the obvious.
The Union BJP – RSS Government of Premier Nerandra Modi has been passing legislations like CAA (Citizen Amendment Act), NRC ( National Registers of Citizen’s) and NPR (National Population Register) and others which are both against the concept of Human Rights and also the Constitution of the Hindu Indian state.
Laws like AFSPA(Armed Forces Special Powers Act), FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Act) and UAPA (Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.), which the UN Commissioner for Human Rights has brought to the notice of the public. These laws are communal and sectarian in nature and used against the minorities, schedule castes and Adavasis or Tribal’s.
We have informed the UN and other authorities charged with the duty of upkeep of Human Rights times out of number about these anti people inhuman laws.
Once again for such bodies we bring to their notice that the Hindu Indian Union Government of Premier Nerandra Modi has not signed or ratified the following UN conventions, protocols, treaties and covenants:
1. 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
2. 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
3. 1954 Convention relating to Status of Stateless Persons.
4. 1960 Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples.
5. 1965 International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.
6. 1966 Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
7. 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees. It is because there are still 30,000 Sikh Stateless refugees in Kashmir since 1947.
8. 1972 Treaty on the Limitation of Anti-Ballistic Missile System.
9. 1972 Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. If this Convention had been followed, neither the Darbar Sahib, the Golden Temple would not have been reduced to rubble nor the Babri Masjid in 1992.
10. 1984 Convention against Torture and other Cruel Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
11. 1984 Safeguard and guaranteeing protection of the Rights of those facing the death penalty.
12. 1995 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
13. 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.
14. 1997 Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of anti-Personnel Mines and their Destruction (the Ottawa Convention on the abolition of landmines).
15. 2001 Rome Statute, by virtue of which the International Criminal Court has been set up at The Hague.
16. 2010 The Convention on Cluster Munitions prohibits all use, stockpiling, production and transfer of Cluster Munitions.
Our Party also supports the statement of the PUCL dated 22nd October, 2020 published in the Indian Express, which we print below:
It is obvious that these laws are being used to torture and torment the minorities, schedule castes and Adivavsis or Tribals’s.
Our Party also thanks the UN Commissioner for Human Rights Ms. Michelle Bachelet for realizing the condition of the peoples Human Rights and their safety and upkeep.
The Judiciary in the Hindu state, the Supreme Court and the National Human Rights Commission in Delhi are charged with the duty to safeguard the Human Rights of the people which are prominently enshrined in the constitution as fundamental rights. At this stage of time both these two institutions are not performing their constitutional duties. They have been influenced by the right wing and radicalized Union Government of the BJP – RSS led by Premier Nerandra Modi.
We ask all worthy sovereign members of the UN, how can the Hindu Indian state, under these circumstances be made a permanent member of the UN Security Council? This request of the Hindu Indian state is coming forth in all Foreign Offices and the chambers of the UN.
We think and appeal to all sovereign countries to fathom deeply the state of Human Rights in the Hindu Indian state, before they support this country’s demand to sit at the high table of the Security Council.
